Harvard Law School White Paper on DSME Cost Sharing Released

As technical assistance for the Together on Diabetes initiative funded by the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation, we requested a DSME cost-sharing white paper from the Harvard Law School. The white paper, Reconsidering Cost-Sharing For Diabetes Self-Management Education: Recommendation For Policy Reform, draws the conclusion that  insurers should provide coverage of DSME with little or no cost-sharing in order to both improve patient health and curb costs.
